I don't usually like to go after Sen. Ted Kennedy. Not because it's undeserved, mind you, but because it's not very sporting. I mean, it's less like shooting fish in a barrel than like shooting a fish duct-taped to the end of your gun. But, sometimes, a disgruntled reactionary's gotta do what a disgruntled reactionary's gotta do. . ."Today, we say the only thing we have to fear is four more years of George Bush."
Elsewhere in his speech, Kennedy quipped:We bear no ill will toward our opponents. In fact, we'd be happy to have them over for a polite little tea party. I know just the place - right down the road at Boston Harbor.
Yes, folks, that's Ted Kennedy joking about throwing people in the water on the 35th anniversary month of Chappaquiddick
. Then again, good taste has never been the Senator's strong point.
